180mm Paris V3 43° Jet Black Longboard Skateboard Truck
Very pleased to announce the release of the Paris V3 longboard trucks.
It's been a long time coming but well worth the wait!
These trucks are stronger, straighter and funner than ever. All new from the ground up to step up the longboard truck game. Paris redesigned their top selling longboard trucks to bring us the new and improved Paris V3! These trucks feature new manufacturing process that allows the use of a true T6 heat-treatment, offering further durability.
The bushings on the Paris V3 trucks have been updated. New and improved 90a bushing formula. The top cone bushing’s new shape offers better performance and rebound, and the baseplates now come equipped with 96a urethane pivot cups.
With all new colors, these trucks look as great as they ride!
As soon as you mount a set of Paris V3s to your board, you can tell these guys went the extra mile to perfect the geometry of their trucks to bring you the most refined longboard truck on the market.
These 43 degree trucks should only be used on boards with deep wheelwells or significant cutouts that will prevent the board from getting wheelbite. We suggest mounting them on a smaller-than-usual wheelbase to get the most response out of them.
If you're just starting out and aren't exactly sure what baseplate angles will do for you, we suggest that you try out the standard 180mm Paris V3 trucks that come with a 50 degree baseplate.
Featuring a more lean-oriented geometry, the Paris V3 43° trucks are the ideal choice for fast freeride and downhill—a perfect balance of agility and stability. The lower-degree baseplate, combined with Paris’ 90a double barrel bushings, offers more control at higher speeds.
For added customization, Paris has matched the ride heights of the 50° and 43° baseplates giving you the freedom to dial in that perfect split-degree setup.
Paris V3 trucks are produced using Paris’ new, proprietary alloy forming process, which utilizes techniques derived from casting, extrusion and forging. This gives the V3 a molecular structure that provides strength far beyond any other cast truck on the market.
The new manufacturing process also allows Paris to use a true T6 heat-treatment, offering further durability.
Paris has redesigned the hanger’s barrel and shoulders adding more material, and reinforced the baseplate with an additional support beam to increase strength and reduce acute stress to the area.
The kingpins have been modified making them tougher and more resilient and the baseplates come equipped with hand-poured, 96a urethane pivot cups, which provide an ultra-smooth turn and return to center.
